Group of Interest: Human Purification Front

Database ID: 2643

Area of Operations: Eastern Europe, Asia Minor

Threat Level: Red

Overview: The Human Purification Front is an ecoterrorist group focused on reverting humanity to a pre-Neolithic state. Geographically the group is situated in East Europe and Anatolia, but it sources members from across the globe. Most members share anarcho-primitive ideals and slight technophobia. Newer members, however, tend to use more modern technology in an attempt at syncretism.

The group's operations focus on the destruction of major population centres in their area of operations via anomalous means. Recently, members have been seen attempting to recreate Daevite herbology and Nälkä flechcrafting.

Front fighters have been observed using Soviet-style full-automatic Avtomat Kalashnikovs [7.62×39mm ammo type]. Oddly enough, a fighter has been observed using AP rounds during a failed raid on Outpost-Zeta-53. During ambushes, it is not uncommon to see a fighter wielding an RPG, or other types of explosives.

Several IEDs have been discovered along foundation convoy routes. How the Front knows of these routes is unknown, it is suspected they have breached foundation ranks, this threat must be treated swiftly and carefully. MTF Alpha-5 ("Honour Guard") has been deployed to offer extra protection along their routes until the Front agent has been captured and dealt with.

Armour wise, Front fighters have been observed using civilian body armour, and even bicycle helmets. Old soviet gas masks seem to have been issued to most fighters, making the use of chemical gas useless. Fighters have been seen in old hoodies, jeans, and sweatpants, which indicates the Front's funding isn't as great as other organisations.

Due to their lack of combat skill and combat gear, the Front use guerilla warfare tactics, similar to those used in the middle east. The Front deploys IEDs along roads, striking when they hear an IED go off, usually from tree lines. The Front never stays in one location for long, making it near impossible to strike their HQ. Its theorized that they dont have an HQ. The Front seems to prefer urban combat environments, using the height of buildings to fire down on enemy troops, and retreating into buildings, making it near impossible for foundation personnel to capture and or dispatch Front fighters due to the number of traps being set up in said buildings.

The exact training process the Front undergoes is unknown but it is suspected they are trained in the art of guerilla warfare due to the tactics they use during combat. Each fighter seems to be physically fit, and stronger than the average person, which implies physical training daily.

Containment Approach: JTF Psi-14 ("Technocrats") is tasked with suppressing (and eventually dismantling) Front activity in Eastern Europe and Asia Minor. ψ-14 is stationed at Dimensional-Site-32, allowing to materialize wherever necessary. ψ-14 is staffed by thaumaturges, members of GoI-004A ("The Broken Church"), and GOC Agents affiliated with the Servants of the Silicon Nornir. ψ-14 is to act with extreme prejudice when engaging with Front forces.

Anomalous objects with major destructive capabilities, especially against man-made structures, are to be considered constantly at risk from Front attempts to gain control over them. As such, deployments of ψ-14 are to control security over these anomalies for two months following any major Front activity. The only anomalies exempt from this protocol are SCP-804 and SCP-1440, as both of those are either unreachable by Front or unusable by them.

Members: Most volunteers of Front do not leave a major impact on the organisation, and rarely stick around for longer than a year. However, over the organisation's life, three members have risen to prominence:

  • The Warrior (PoI-7638): One of the first Front members known to The Foundation, The Warrior seems to heavily influence The Front's abilities in the field. He is usually seen leading Front soldiers into combat or engaging with enemy forces on his own. Investigations conducted by The Foundation's Department of Intelligence has revealed that The Warrior's current appearance is not their original, and has been morphed over time. Foundation personnel have noticed a connection between The Warrior's appearance and that of Tzekel-Kan in the movie The Road to El Dorado. The Warrior has demonstrated himself to be a Type Red (Expanding Regeneration). He regularly uses this to wield more weapons than the average person or grow to tremendous sizes. On one occasion, The Warrior was recorded spreading his body out and engulfing enemy forces in a "wave" of flesh.
  • The Shaman (PoI-7639): A sort of spiritual leader for The Front, The Shaman offers morale and thaumaturgic support to The Front. The Shaman is a young adult woman (late 20s to early 30s) of Eastern European descent. The Shaman leads members of The Front in religious congregations, their belief system showing multiple similarities to animalism. Nature spirits are often revered by The Front, and The Shaman is said to be capable of communicating with said spirits.

Notable Incidents

Battle of Norway
October 2014

A Foundation convoy transporting SCP-30005 was ambushed by a Front force, made up of roughly 29 individuals. The convoy received small arms fire, as well as a few rockets, which managed to disable 4 of the 9 armoured cars while trying to escape their current situation. The remaining 4 vehicles were disabled by IEDs located further up the road. SCP-30005 is suspected to be currently contained within a Front outpost in the Jewish Autonomous Oblast of Russia. A follow-up raid proved otherwise. Recovery of SCP-30005 is considered a Level-IV Priority.

Northern Europe Campaign
May 2018

Front forces launched a series of terror attacks in Finland, Iceland, and Sweden. Total civilian deaths totalled up to 86, while local police deaths were only 12. Foundation personnel had 5 casualties. Multiple mass shootings, and bombings. Attempted use of SCP-████, though intercepted and recontained by Foundation forces, resulting in the capture of 2 Front members, and the death of 6. SCP-████ was transported to Site-██. The Front pulled out, when threatened with further Foundation action, but not without a final confrontation. 5 Foundation personnel were severely wounded, later dying of their injuries. 12 Front members were killed during the gunfight, with another 12 surrendering.
